Clinical Trial Software

Clinical Trials Software

Clinical Trials Software is used to capture and manage clinical trial data. It allows users to build their own studies, design electronic Case Report Form's (eCRFs) and conduct a full range of clinical data capture and clinical data management functions.

Collaborative Authoring  

Collaborative Authoring

Collaborative Authoring tools allow research teams to author documents together.
They range from Wikis which are web - focused to tools like Google docs and Microsoft Office Live which is focused on desktop publishing.

Collaborative Research Environment  

Collaborative Research Environment

A Collaborative Research Environment is a online application that combines and integrates several collaboration tools such as wikis, file hosting, discussion forums, chat, calendar and blogs etc.

Content Management Systems  

Content Management Systems (CMS)

Content Management Systems (CMS) are used to create websites and publish documents, without the user having to know the detailed ins' and outs' of web development.

Data Storage  

Data Storage

These Data Storage services provide a capacity and means for storing raw data. Online data storage options can be particularly useful in situations where a distributed team of researchers are working on the same data.

File Sharing  

File Sharing

There are three modes of file sharing, first is for a researcher to share their own files between multiple computers (e.g. home and office), the second is for on-going shared access to a set of files for multiple researchers and the third is for one-off file transfers (often very large) from one researcher to another.

High Performance Computing  

High Performance Computing

High Performance Computing is used to solve real world problems of significant scale or detail, across a diverse range of disciplines including; physics, biology, chemistry, geo-science, climate science, engineering and many others.

Issue Tracking  

Issue Tracking

Issue tracking software is used to keep track of problems and tasks, including: due dates, who is responsible, outcomes and so on.
Research Administrative Systems  

Research Administrative Systems

Many Research Administrative Systems exist to assist researchers with varying aspects of their research workflow.
Survey Tools  

Survey Tools

Conducting surveys is an important part of many research projects and where respondents are able to complete a survey electronically, there are many software tools that are able to assist.
Utilities  

Utilities

This category contains a variety of utilities that do not fit into any of the other categories.

Version Control  

Version Control Software

Version Control Software allows users to keep a repository of documents and record the history of their changes over time.
